Features

Game Reports

  • G Dany Sabourin stopped 38 of 39 to lead the Springfield Falcons to a 3-1 win and push the Albany River Rats out of playoff contention. (The Republican)
  • Rochester Americans G David Shantz had a whirlwind call-up yesterday. He was dressed with only 8 minutes to spare before puck drop and then was given the start, in which he stopped 51 of 53 shots to keep it tied through OT, but let in all three shootout attempts for the loss to Binghamton. (Sharp on the Sens)

    (And speaking of LaCosta, here’s an interview from February from Crunch blog Chairman How’s Glorious Army. You may hit a content warning, but I assure you this post is safe for work.)

About The Author

Heather Galindo

I cover the AHL Houston Aeros for ProHockeyNews.com, which has focused my passion for goaltending on minor league goalies mainly in the AHL. To stay abreast of every last drop of AHL goalie news, follow me at @InGoalMagAHL on Twitter while the big news, analysis, etc. will be posted here at InGoalMag.com. I was so inspired by watching the goalies here in Houston a few years ago that I went out and learned to skate and play hockey in order to become a goalie myself. So far I'm still more sieve than goalie, but I've never had more fun being so terrible at something!
